An Interactive Discussion of Distance Learning Technologies and Methods.
Annetta, Leonard A.
The attention given to distance education in high schools, universities, and corporations has been increasing due to cost and time effectiveness for the learner. This paper identifies a framework for teaching science using distance education. Interactive television, which is a two-way communication device, allows student and presenter to interact in real-time at a distance. A tracking option is available for the facilitator to track the time students spend on each task. Distance education is used as an instructional tool, which is an important and cost-effective teaching method that creates a meaningful learning environment. (Contains 14 references.) (YDS)
